i also heard, that season two aint starting until october 26th, ten months away is good in a way as it gives more people, more time to find out about it. But, i mean it might be a bit too long where most of us just totally forget about it.
it's based on a comic book, so you if you want your fix waiting for the new season, you could always pick up the graphic novels.
hopefully, they pull a true blood and dont stay true to the books.. only use them as a jumping off point
i've never read the books, but they've been highly praised
for example, the guy who is supposed to be rick's best friend and who was screwing around with his wife, who's name escapes me right now,actually dies in like the 4th issue of the comic.
they want to keep everyone guessing including everyone who has read the comic.
I have picked up 1-6 so far and I gotta say for someone who has not picked up a comic in about 15 years, this series rocks! I'm a zombie freak in the first place, but still, I didn't expect to be so impressed and into the comic. The writing is good. I am impressed by the ability of the writer to set the tone and atmosphere. This series def has a Romero-esque feel to it. And the art (black and white w/ grey tones) is just amazing! :cool:
I highly recommend this series to all. Check it out. For those that live in the T-dot, 1million comics @ Yonge and Wellseley is a good spot as is Silver Snail @ Queen and Peter.
Been reading these too. I'm not into comics but the show is so good I wanted to see what it was based on. Good reading.
I've watched a couple episodes, only came out a few months ago here!
Means I'll have to wait to read 'em :(...but it saves me several trips!
and yeah i noticed that they sell @ US cost, they got some pretty cool gear there for my boy (and me). :o
Here's the trailer for season 2 of the walking dead! Can't wait.
Sadly though Frank Darabont (Shawshank redemption) has left the series, too bad. :(
For those who watched season 1, it's def worth another look...go and cop the DVD'S.
Show is such a travesty it's unreal
i was a huge fan of the comics well before the show came out and was extremely geeked to hear they were making a show. all i could think about was "man this is going to be one hell of a gory, mature show" but figured they'd tone it down some. they did that, but they also basically lit the story on fire and made it up as they went. im not going to tell you some of the things that should have happened by this point or should absolutely NOT have happened but lets just say the show has about as much in common with the comic as the running man did with the book.
i'm not even being one of those "this will never live up to the book!" dorks, its seriously just bad. theres nothing in the comic that couldn't be done on the small screen and the fact they threw in the whole thing at the end and certain people still being alive is almost insulting.
I haven't watched the series yet nor read the comics, but this seems to happen all the time. For instance True Blood (the TV show) is kind of similar to the books but differs pretty substantially. Still a good show though, and I can't wait to see The Walking Dead. From what I hear, it is top notch.
Running Man - that is classic. I had no idea that it was Stephen King when I read it. The movie, however, was so 80s and so bad that I enjoyed it, even if it has little to do with the book. It is kind of like the Batman comics and those horrid Batman movies of the late 80s and 90s.
The show is still going to roughly follow the same destinations of the comic story line. The next major stop will be Hershel's farm. Very rare is anything filmed to stay exactly true to the literature. There are always changes. I like the comics and I'm not a comic guy. I like the show equally as much and I am certainly fan of the zombie genre.
I actually like that the show gave us some information on what is causing the zombie outbreak. The comic never really went there much besides that it was some sort of infection.
